Show Notes

Mobility Matters hosts  Arlene Holt and Christopher Gonda are joined by Sean Meehan
 Senior Research Specialist of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center, Rutgers University to discuss the Safe Routes to NJ program and its impact on our region.

The New Jersey Safe Routes Program, supported by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, is a statewide initiative with a mission to partner with schools and communities to prioritize and implement opportunities for people to walk, bike, or travel by other wheeled devices. By focusing on improvements to support active travel by youth, we believe we can create conditions that are safe, healthy, equitable, and appealing for all.   

Safe Routes for All provides safe and equitable access to active transportation for people of all ages and abilities from all backgrounds and neighborhoods in New Jersey.
